ArtsCanisius proudly presents the Meet-the-Faculty Recital today, November 7 at noon in the Montante Cultural Center.  Today’s recital features mezzo-soprano Melissa Thorburn and Richard Falkenstein, PhD, playing the lute, in a performance of music by John Dowland, Giulio Caccini and Jean-Baptiste Besard.

Thorburn, an adjunct professor, teaches voice in addition to music courses here at Canisius and Falkenstein is chair of the Fine Arts Department. The duo performs in recitals in Western New York and has performed in France as well.

This recital is free and open to the public and should run under an hour, so it is the perfect way to spend your lunch hour.  For questions or additional information, please call the Fine Arts Office at Ext. 2542.
